* EnsembleDarkhorse: Trouble has become quite popular for shipping with Holly, thanks in part to his HeroOfAnotherStory status.
** And his rampant [[BadAss badassery]].
* FanPreferredCouple: Artemis/Holly is by far the biggest ship in the fandom, even [[FoeYay back when they hated each other]]. The fact that Colfer [[ShipTease keeps teasing it]] despite claiming [[ShipSinking nothing will ever happen]] doesn't help. [[spoiler:The series ends without it being strictly sunk ''or'' canonized, so he apparently decided to let fans believe what they wanted about it.]]

* CopyCatSue: Minerva is bashed for this. She's not too bad a character and [[spoiler: Artemis beats her almost easily]] but she was too similar to the eponymous character and the author was trying to ship the two a little too much.
** For what it's worth, that book is a DolledUpInstallment. Colfer realized that his new protagonist was a bit like Artemis and just decided to throw him in, [[DemotedToExtra demoting]] Minerva to a secondary character.

* IdiotPlot: The entire berserker threat would never have occurred if they had simply shot the future Opal BEFORE she became all powerful.

* InferredHolocaust: In The Last Guardian, [[spoiler: a good chunk of technology, both human and fairy, ceases to function. This leads to chaos on both ends, but the humans bare the brunt of it as cities darken, people loot, medical equipment is useless, and '''airplanes fall from the sky'''. [[NoEndorHolocaust Nobody particularly dwells on this,]][[ValuesDissonance and the narrator considers this a good thing.]]]]

* BrokenBase: When the film adaptation of the series was [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/07/29/disney-harvey-weinstein-team-for-artemis-fowl-movie-adapatation announced]], fans were divided on the possible casting on Holly's actress, particularly on [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad her skin color]]. It doesn't help that Colfer wants SaoirseRonan to play Holly which adds more fuel to the fire.

* Dwarf biology can generally be relied upon to produce one new secret trump card for Mulch to get out of trouble with per book.

* GeniusBonus: The cryptography puzzles along the bottom of each book (and [[HiddenInPlainSight on the book covers]]) are more of a [[MarathonBoss Patience Bonus]], but there are little references throughout the book that just make it ''so'' much more fun if you happen to know them, or [[LateToThePunchline realize what they meant three years later]].

* MarySue: Mulch Diggums. He has new powers as the plot demands, can get out of any situation (except as the plot demands), and always shows up in the nick of time to save the protagonists.

** [[spoiler: Not to mention all of the people in cities who will starve to death because they can't get food shipped in, submariners who are trapped in steel tombs miles beneath the waves, miners stuck in shafts with no way out, and anybody on a boat, who will be most likely stranded in the middle of the ocean. The book also stated that anything connected to Opal Koboi, '''exploded''', which includes most of our modern technology, such as pacemakers. [[SarcasmMode But hey, at least people aren't distracted by TV anymore!]]]]
**Justified: [[spoiler: the narrator ends up being Holly Short, a fairy, so it makes sense as to how she wouldn't dwell on the human deaths.]]
